Mike Arms Comes to East Texas!

Seven out of 10 pet owners in America favor no-kill animal shelters or shelters with a strict policy on euthanizing pets. According to an Associated Press-Petside.com poll released in January, 71 percent of pet owners feel that shelters should only be allowed to euthanize animals when they are too sick to be treated or too aggressive to be adopted. Only 25 percent said that euthanasia should be used as a means to control the animal population. Mike Arms, president of the Helen Woodward Animal Center located in Rancho Santa Fe, California, said, “I am firmly in agreement that no adoptable pet should be euthanized. I teach all over the world that this can be a reality if organizations run themselves as a business and learn how to market these beautiful pets”. Arms is credited with saving the lives of more orphaned animals than anyone else in the history of the planet.  On March 2 at Papacita’s Restaurant in Longview, Arms will talk with East Texans about "The Animal Shelter of the Future", and how to run such a facility here. The 6:30 p.m. event encourages Animal professional and the residents in Gregg, Upshur, Rusk, Morris and other counties to join this free event.  Arms will talk March 2 about East Texas’ pet overpopulation problem and a public-private plan to build and successfully operate a no-kill pet adoption center. Among his topics will be the business of marketing animals to the public. Mike Arms will be sharing the philosophy on how a Center inspires and teaches, locally and globally.  Arms is recognized worldwide as the creator of both the International Pet Adoption and "Iams Home 4 the Holidays",  Arms’ visit is an important prelude to the Fete for Pets’ 2nd Annual Fundraiser Party at Flyin Feathers Ranch in Upshur County on March 31, according to organizer and President Alicia Nolte.
